Pete Doherty’s Christmas Carol Panto: WIth Cold Turkey And Amy Winehouse’s Ghost
JUNKIE rocker Pete Doherty has fled to Paris because he says the ghost of Amy Winehouse is haunting his London flat.
It is a well known fact that ghosts cannot stand Paris, City of Lights.
He told pals the 27-year-old’s spirit visited him three or four times at the pad close to where she died in Camden in July.
It’s Pete Doherty’s Christmas Carol.
We join the action as Pete Eben-eeze-r-good is setting in for the night.
Dong! It’s Amy Winehouse, dusted in white powders as the Ghost of Christmas Past. Pete journeys back to that halcyon time before he’d sniffed his first marker pen and had no idea what Tippex was.
Dong! Amy is now dressed as the Ghost of Christmas Present (novelty flashing santa hat, saucy santa suspenders and bottles of festive red and white amyl nitrate). She shows him life beyond his immediate circle. There is joy and laughter, and not of all of it drugs induced.
Dong! Amy is now the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. Pete is living in alone in a tent in rural Somerset. The “venue” is divided into the rave stage, the pyramid stage (an upturned Toblerone packet) and the chill-out zone. He’s not dead – it’s just that everyone else thinks he is.
Says a “pal”:
“He is utterly convinced that he has seen her ghost. A lot of people will think his visions are probably drug-induced but he claims he is clean.”
Pass the turkey…before it gets cold…
